She’s 79 and looking fine! We know it’s pretty hard to believe, but Jane Fonda is turning 80 on Dec. 21, 2017. The gorgeous star has been a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood for over half a century since starting her career on the stage and transitioning to the big screen in the ’60s with hits like 1962’s “Period of Adjustment” and 1968’s “Barbarella.” Though Jane announced her retirement in the ’90s, she couldn’t stay away from the spotlight for long. She went back to work in 2005 alongside Jennifer Lopez in “Monster-in-Law,” followed that up with “Georgia Rule” in 2007 and then headed to Broadway where she picked up a Tony nomination for her work in “33 Variations.” She currently stars on Netflix’s hit series “Grace and Frankie” with another pretty lady over 70, Lily Tomlin. As for her love life? The beauty has been married three times: first for eight years to French film director Roger Vadim, with whom she shares daughter Vanessa; next for 17 years to activist Tom Hayden, with whom she shares biological son Troy and adopted daughter Mary Luana; and finally for 10 years to her last husband, Ted Turner. Jane and record producer Richard Perry ended their eight-year romance in 2017. Now keep reading to check out more stars who are over 70 and still sizzling!’
Tina Turner turned 78 in 2017! The sexy singer, born Anna Mae Bullock, stepped onto the music scene in the ’50s, originally going by “Little Ann.” By the ’60s, she’d adopted the stage name Tina Turner and rose to fame in the Ike & Tina Turner Revue alongside future husband Ike Turner. Ike and Tina had some major hits that decade including “A Fool in Love” and “River Deep – Mountain High,” but their union wasn’t meant to last. The power couple ended their tumultuous, abusive relationship in 1976 and divorced in 1978. But Tina didn’t let that breakup end her career: She launched a successful solo career in the ’80s during which she released hit album “Private Dancer.” The mother of two—she has sons Craig (with ex-boyfriend Raymond Hill) and Ronnie (with Ike)—has remained in the spotlight ever since (though she did move to Switzerland and take citizenship there) and holds some pretty impressive records for her age. In April 2013, she landed the cover of German Vogue, becoming the oldest person worldwide to ever be featured on the brand’s cover. She’s happily married to longtime love Erwin Bach, whom she dated for 27 years before they wed in 2013. Next up: “Tina: The Tina Turner Musical,” based on her life story, will premiere in London in March 2018.
